News: Christmas Project from Johnny & The Baptists & Rachel Parris

Thirty Christmases is to receive its London premiere from 4-23 December.

Named in The Stage's Top 10 UK Christmas Shows 2016, it was commissioned last year for Oxford's Old Fire Station and is written by Jonny Donahoe of musical combo Jonny & The Baptists. Stuffed with music, laughter and love, the show now comes to London for three weeks at the New Diorama Theatre. 

Jonny and Rachel haven’t had a good Christmas in years. Not since they last saw Dad... But this time they’re going to get it right. First they’ve got a few things to get straight, and a story to tell you...
 
A heart-warming story about traditions, politics, family rivalries – and making Christmas happen, despite everything. Originally created for Oxford's Old Fire Station, the show touches on themes of homelessness and foster care in a heart-lifting, contemporary new Christmas story for adults.
  
The show stars a trio of actor-musician-comedians, including Rachel Parris (Austentatious, The IT Crowd, The Mash Report) alongside Donahoe and his musical comedy partner in Jonny & the Baptists, Paddy Gervers. It is directed by Alice Hamilton (Visitors, Arcola/Bush Theatre; German Skerries, Orange Tree/UK Tour).
 
Thirty Christmases is at The New Diorama, NW1 from 4-23 December. Tickets and info here: newdiorama.com
